Craftman Backpack blower ? year make?

I got used Craftsman Backpack blower and I was wondering if someone could tell me the year and original manufacturer of the unit.

Model 360.79679.0

It is a 54 cc engine looks to be Homelite by its design but not sure of this.

It originally would not start but I cleaned out the carburetor and it woks just find now.

You can call the Sears 800 parts num and ask who their vendor 360 is.
thanks,

Looking at the part numbers, it was made by Solo,
as for the age, you need to find an old Solo dealer.

Thanks for the replies!

You were right on with Solo, I went to their web site and found the parts listing and diagrams for the unit.

As for it age it looks to be from around 7/98.

Its currently missing the air filter assembly so I will have to do something about that otherwise it starts only after two or three pulls.

Once again thanks for the replies and information.
